I am looking to travel to the Faroe Islands from Aug 18-25. I will be by myself and found a cheap hostel (www.faroeislandshotels.com/kerjalon.htm) but it seems pretty far from the main center. Is anyone else going that might want to meet up or possibly rent an airbnb house together? It'd be fun to get a group of random people together. Anyways, just checking. Thanks!
I was recently in Torshavn and visited a guitar shop (I think probably the only one). I was playing a very nice Rickenbacker electric, and wanted the model number, but can't find any contact details for the guitar store. Could anyone help me out?

First, I want to apologize for my bad English. We are a Spanish group of 7 people, July 30 we will be us in the Faroe Islands for a few hours. We want to take a tour and we look transportation.
We arrived at Torshavn on July 30 at 8 am, we assume that about 8.30 we could start the tour, we would go to Nordradalur, Kollafjørður, Saksun and especially go to Vágar to pass Sandavágur, get to lake Sørvagsvatn, Bøsdalafossur and Gasadalur. Then we need some time to visit and Tinganes Tórshavn, the tour should end in the capital at 3:30 pm. making a total of 7 hours.
Do you can offer this service or to report a contact?

I am considering a trip from Oslo to Bergen to see Flåm and the beautiful sceneries from the train next summer. While already being in Bergen I am also considering flying to Faroe Islands. Atlantic Airways operates a non-stop line between Bergen and Torshavn Thursdays arriving at 8.15 p.m. and leaving Sundays at 7.35 p.m.
1. We do not want to rent a car, but we would like to see the most beautiful parts of Faroe Island. Is it possible to join organized tours/daytrips to the islands highlights? Is staying in Torshavn and doing daytrips to recommend?
2. What are the highlights for beautiful nature and sceneries? My 75 year old mother will travel with me so long hiking is not an option but walks to reach viewpoints etc wearing sneakers (no mountain boots) are ok. Bird watching is not a must, but of course birds are ok if it is part of a beautiful view. I have read other threads as well as the tips here on VT.
3. Is Three days to short? It is only these non-stop flights mentioned in the text above which is an option for us. Ten days is not an option, so it is three days or skip it.
Thanks from Lena
I am planning to do go on a trip to the Faroe Islands next June. As I have never been before I don't know how much spending money I would need. How much money would I need for a week in the Faroe Isalnds (Monday-Friday)
can I work in Faroe Island if I have swedish citizenship?
Hi, We're arriving in the port of Torshavn and we are staying there one day. Can we book a land trip in the port or it's better to buy a guided tour on the ship?

We are spending a week in the Faroe Islands in late August and was wondering if I could have some suggestions on what I must squeeze in, in that time. We are hiring a car so we can travel anywhere. There is so much to see and do I just want to make sure that I include the best bits. We are staying in Kvivik and this will be our base. We are pretty much interested in doing anything from hiking to adventure activites. So far I only have a music shop that I am very interested in going to in Torshvan!
My friends and I will be arriving into the port of Torshavn for a one day visit. Our ship arrives 7AM and departs 5PM. I know there is alot of beautiful scenery to see and I was hoping someone could give us some guidance.
I have read about the Bird Cliffs and I know they sponsor a tour from the ship here. Does anyone know if this is a difficult trip for someone using a cane? I just had hip surgery and would love to see the cliffs they mention, but I am afraid if it is too rough I will injure my hip.
Can you hire a taxi or van to take you on a land tour to see the cliffs and other scenery?
What other suggestions would you give for this amount of time in Torshavn? I understand all of the islands offer beauty, but any special places you can tell me about?
Also, unfortunately to some, I love to shop! I look for items that are unique to the place I am visiting, along with T-shirts, post cards and such for the little ones at home. Any suggestions?
I am hoping to be able to do some walking and wonder if it is easy enough to get around the town from the pier.
I would appreciate any info that you can give me. I can't wait to arrive.
Looking to hire a taxi for a tour in Torvshavn Site would be appreciated
I get in on a flight from Iceland with Atlantic Airways at around 8pm on Vagar on a Monday night. Is there any chance of me hiring a bike at/close to the airport and cycling round the island for a couple of days before arriving in Torshavn on the Thursday and leaving it at a bike shop there where I get the ferry on to Denmark?
Faroe Islands have been my dream place to visit since forever...I badly wanted to go this past summer but life and work got in the way. Now, I am very torn - should I try and make it this November (combine it with an Iceland tour this winter) or wait and combine it with a Copenhagen-Oslo trip next summer?
What are the islands like for sightseeing in winter? (weather, public transport availability, any guided tours, amount of daylight etc) I know there are some tours offered in the summer that visit some of the islands, the bird cliffs of Vestmanna and some local hikes/horse riding etc. Will I (travelling solo) be able to do all this in winter as well? I like to spend time outdoors and not all the time inside museums. That said, I do like the rain, misty and cloudy days.
Does anyone know if 8 ball pool is played in the Faroe Islands? If so, could you post me contact details for the person who organises it? Thank you.
I would like to visit the Faroes,and i need to know the cheapest way, via london, iceland or Oslo?
Good Day from Western Australia. I was interested if the practice of collecting Sea Bird eggs such as Guillemots still continues and is legal on the Faeroe Islands.
I am attempting to source a number of these eggs legally. Eggs such as the Guillemot show great colour diversity and would be interesting for display purposes and the Museum collection as we have nothing like them down here.
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
I believe the best time of the year to come to the Island to look into the collecting and observe the practice would be May June so I was hoping for info on this to have time to organize a trip details.
Email addressee's of anyone who could help us would be great.
Can I still get a ferry from Bergen to the Faroe Islands?? I have been searching online and it seems that they might have discontinued this service. I looked at Smyril Lines and UK lines.
I have been an admirer of the Islands and a supporter of the Faroese national football team for some time, and I would love to represent them here in the United States by buying a jersey. I've looked all over the internet to no avail, and I am now interested in contacting a store by mail, be it in Torshavn or elsewhere, that might sell and ship me one here, as it will be many years before physically visiting the Islands is a possibility.
Might anyone know of such a place? If so, I would love to know how I might get in touch with them.
Hallo, folks! (and forgive me for some kind of duplicating previous question)
As fas as I know, currently Faroe islands do not have any air or sea links with Shetland. I wrote to Shetland tourism authorities about this, the reply was negative, indeed they do not have these links.
However, maybe there are, i.e., private yachts (or boats) who +/- regularly cross the sea with passengers in that particular route? Or any small local planes? Any ideas appreciated.
I'm planning my trip to Faroes and would gladly include Shetland, too, if it would be possible to avoid time and money consuming transit from Faroe to Shetland via UK (or anybody else's) mainland.
Hi, seems to be a lot of conflicting information about how to get from Shetland to the Faroes. I'm looking to go to the Shetlands in June 2009 and hope to spend a couple of days over in the Faroes, getting a plane back to London. Smyril Line doesn't seem to go to the Shetlands any more, so what would be the easiest way of making the journey?
